What Are The Criteria For Selecting A Quality Power Cables

Posted by Admin on August, 26, 2011

When it comes to lightening and giving energy supply to the electrical devices, choice of quality Power Cables is must. These cables are used in house wiring, tool machines, steel production units, electrical substations, etc. Low Quality Power cables are risky to use and can lead to short circuits and electrical fire. To enlighten your home, offices and any other building, it is important to use premium quality Cables that are properly insulated. High tensile strength, resistance to water, and strength to carry high current power supply with optimum voltage resistance are some of the qualities to be scrutinized while purchasing Power cables from Manufacturers or Suppliers in India.
The selection of power cables depend on the demand of power for consumption. On the basis of the amount of power consumption, the selection of Power cables with specific current carrying capacities are installed. But, whatever be the demand, use of quality Power cables should be the priority. Quality Power cables prevent energy loss, and also ensure life safety through safe power supply. Some of the advantages of using best quality Power cables are:
  • Less dielectric losses
  • Higher current carrying capacity
  • Higher short circuit rating
  • Good flexibility
  • Easy jointing and termination
  • Optimum voltage resistance
To make a smart selection of Power cables, one needs to be aware of their technical specifications and should make selection after thorough inquiry. The enquiry has to be made about:
Quality certification: The Cables with International Standard (IS) certification are the tested and trusted ones. And only such tested cables should be used.
Insulation: One also needs to check for the insulation. Best quality insulation material offers complete protection from leakage and ensures smooth supply without breakage. Other properties of finely insulated Power cables are high electric strength and low dielectric losses. They should not be damaged in harsh weather conditions, and must provide service for a much longer time.
About Manufacturer: The information about the reputation of different power cable
Manufacturers should be checked prior to purchase. Online search is beneficial in zeroing in the best manufacturer in the Power cable field. Only the trusted and certified ones should be selected for ordering.
Voltage grade: Power Cables with resistance to fluctuating voltage supply offer high power supply without any damage.
Size of cable: The cable size has to be determined as per the length of the circuit. With an increase in cable length, there is voltage drip in the circuit because of the Resistance. Larger sized high Ampacity wire should be used to lessen this effect. For example, for 15 ampere circuit, 14 gauge length wires should be used.
To maintain the lightening of the buildings for along time, and to increase the service life of electrical equipment, premium quality Power Cable is mandatory. Smooth and efficient power supply increases the life of electrical equipment. To maintain the smooth water supply, the above mentioned criteria for selection must be considered.
